About Chateau Palmer
Chateau Palmer may have been classified a Third Growth in 1855, but today it routinely challenges Chateau Margaux for "best of the appellation" status. This "Super Second" has routinely picked up the slack in years that Margaux has fallen short.
89-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
More saturated ruby-red color. More serious, darker aromas of blackberry, mulberry, and licorice, plus complicating truffle and floral nuances. Much sweeter and denser though currently a bit mute in the middle palate due to the recent fining. But this wine silky texture, solid backbone, very fine tannins and persistent, subtle finishing flavor suggest that 1996 will turn out to be a topnotch year for this chateau.
